From Mother Nature With Love

Last week was nice here. By Saturday it was a bit cold, but I was just toasty in a tank top and sweatshirt jacket. The only snow we had left in the yard was the piles where we had the driveway plowed. Those were disappearing. The grass was showing some green. The driveway was muddy and yucky from all the snow melting. I was already planning on doing some yardwork. Spring seemed to be just around the corner.

Mother Nature decided to do a bit of a makeover though! She has decided white is still in....


....with a bit of distressing. Just enough to see where the driveway is....


....and frosty windows.


Oh Punxsutawney Pete, you little varmint, you have failed me!

I guess the coat rack will still be piled with winter garments and boots will still be drying out by the door. No walking around the yard looking for bits of spring popping out of the ground. For now, it's more hibernating in the house. I guess I could do some organizing....

Welcome to Michigan!
If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes, it'll change!

I so agree, last week it felt like spring and now I have snow all over again. I also saw the grass and the ivy in my yard - now SNOW.
Please spring, show your face agin and stay. Oh, I am with you Pux Pete - he stinks!

I know right? This is crazy, the kids now have their second snow day and I think Cam is becoming one with the snow blower! I am still hoping for spring and I quit listening to that little varmint a long time ago! Stay warm! Theresa xoxo

My parents live outside of Toledo, and they got a terrible ice storm last night!
We are enjoying another day of temps in the 60's and sun! But, rain is on the way! Maybe it will bring Spring with it!
Have a wonderful day, sweet friend :)
xo, misha

That's the joke in Tennessee too: if you don't like the weather. We've literally had days of blissful spring and sunny weather in the morning, afternoon major wind storms and rain and end the day with snow!! Enough of winter I say! Let's revolt against it.... just a thought ;))

xoxo,
Ellen
